Where Lucy’s Lookbook Went: The Kitchen

IMG_2431

If you follow me on Instagram (@lulu_eleanor FYI) then you will already know I have a love for all things food, in particular cake whether that’s eating or baking it. Chocolate cake is definitely my forte (see here) but today I branched out and lent my hand to a Lemon Drizzle Traybake – yum! I find lemon drizzle cake to be really refreshing and the best thing about this recipe is it uses the all in one method which is perfect for a quick baking session.
